Columbia University

Dr. Kara Lamb is an Associate Research Scientist at Columbia University in the NSF Learning the Earth with Artificial Intelligence and Physics (LEAP) Center. Her research lies at the intersection of observations and high-resolution modeling, with the goal of improving climate model parameterizations of aerosol and cloud processes. She combines traditional process-based approaches with data science, scientific machine learning, and reduced-order modeling. She was on the science team for the NASA KORUS-AQ and AToM aircraft campaigns and the NOAA FIREX Firelab study, was the lead mentor for the 2022 Frontier Development Laboratory Europe challenge on Aerosols, and is a member of the AMS STAC Committee on AI Applications to Environmental Science.
